Digital propels single-copy paper boost
NetNewsCheck
A community newspaper in Janesville, Wisconsin, has learned that leveraging an aggressive digital platform with a hard paywall can have the side benefit of raising single-copy sales. Lon Haenel, VP of digital media and circulation for the 20,000-circulation Janesville Gazette and its parent company, Bliss Communications, was honored by the Local Media Association earlier this year for managing that lift of 18 percent, which was also propelled by a strategically-timed rate hike.

Nieman Lab
Google wants to be the wallet you use to pay for news. Again. The company recently debuted Contributor, an experimental platform that lets people pay publishers for visiting a site. Instead of buying a subscription, readers put $1 to $3 a month into an account that is used to pay publishers on a per-visit basis. Currently 10 sites are participating in the experiment.

How programmatic media buying is saving the banner ad
The Huffington Post
Why is it so tempting to dismiss entire swaths of the media landscape as dying or dead as Farhad Manjoo did in a piece for the New York Times earlier this month? TV is dead, Print is dead, and as Mr. Manjoo suggested, the banner is dead, proclaim technology and media reporters! The answer is that killing off a media channel is a step toward simplicity in a maddeningly complex landscape.

Is vagueness killing advertising?
Adweek
The rise in popularity of mobile advertising, content marketing, native advertising and the continued focus on digital leads to one question: Does anyone really know what they are? Professions create specific language to allow precise and rapid communication. There is no place for vagueness. It’s not creative to call something different, it’s not more exciting to coin a new word, it’s not useful to be hyperbolic and generate buzz.

What Evernote and Uber deals mean for the future of media
Quartz
Thanks to digital, news publishers thought they could build a direct relationship with their customers. Recent deals signal the opposite. Two recent deals between media and technology companies struck me as a new trend in the distribution of news. One involves the personal note management service Evernote and Dow Jones; the other involves Spotify and Uber.

Why Serial is important to journalism
Columbia Journalism Review
The hit podcast Serial, a journalist’s exploration of whether a young man was wrongly convicted of murder, breaks new ground for our field. There are reams of articles and TV “newsmagazines” that expose the killers of the famous — and not so famous — in gruesome detail. What makes Serial so special and so meaningful for journalism is reporter Sarah Koenig’s transparency. She takes her listeners along with her as she ponders the innocence or guilt of Adnan Syed.

Why the Times hired Kinsey Wilson
Nieman Lab
In a year of both triumphs and stumbles in The New York Times’ ungainly digital business progress, the recent appointment of Kinsey Wilson to the post of strategy and innovation editor makes a lot of sense. Wilson lost his job as NPR’s chief content officer in October. The hope: Wilson will provide a missing link, both within and outside the Times newsroom.
